    Hi folks

    My doctor has started me on Sodium Valproate to see if it helps with the neuralgic pain.

    Has anyone here tried it? Did you experience side effects?

    Thanks
    Michelle

    My doctor had me on it years ago, I think I used it for about 6 months and then stopped because it didn't make any difference to me.
    I might as well have been swallowing M&M's, I hope it works for you!

    or Depakote. Pretty sure its the same one, and antiseizure med that's often used as a mood stabilizer. It was tried on me as a mood stabilizer, it either didn't do anything at all or had side effects I couldn't tolerate. What I do remember for sure is I wasn't on it long. It certainly didn't help pain for me, I'd really remember that one.
